I think the Fourth of July is like the Thanksgiving of summer. Or is that just me? I usually stay away from the fancy food on the Fourth, and tend cook simple family pleasing foods. It’s most likely due to the fact that I don’t want to spend all day in a hot kitchen.
If you are still looking for a few dishes for your upcoming holiday meal, I’ve got you covered. The Fourth of July Recipe Round-Up includes sides, main dish, dessert and drink recipes that will have you in and out of the kitchen in no time. Have a safe & wonderful Fourth!
